the democratic platform, what it stands for, glad democratics brought the country, social security, medicare, affordable care act. good things have been done by democrats, but i'm not driven by ideology. nothing in the record suggests i'm an ideolog or partisan hack. i sponsoredded legislation that led to the three ring binder project, a bipartisan project that brought fiberoptic cables to rural maine. i worked with republicans and democrats, in the race to make a difference, and i will put the interest of maine people ahead of any party ideologies. to suggest you have values or belong to a team that you somehow don't care about people is just really outrageous, and, of course, as you see from tonight's debate, being independent doesn't mean anything other than you don't have a group. >> moderator: have to wrap it up there, mr. dalton? dalton: the two parties, what america did was make the two parties too big to fail, voting for the lesser of two evils, that's ridiculous in my point of view. when i walked down the state, i got signatures myself, talk to the people who signed by petition to g
medicare is in doubt. tens of millions of americans still don't have medical insurance. and the nation faces challenges around the world -- from the middle east to china. later in the broadcast jeffrey brown of the pbs newshour will look at some critical issues all but been ignored during the campaign. frontline will examine key moments that shaped both candidates' lives when they were young men. political journalists and authors will join gwen ifill on the "washington week" set to discuss how the presidency has transformed many of the men who have won it. and jeff greenfield of "need to know" will weigh in on this question: how can we predict which candidates will become successful presidents? but we begin with a look at the most pressing problems facing the nation today, and how the candidates plan to remedy them. after all, the election is a fundamental a clash of ideas. and no matter who is elected tuesday, those problems are not about to go away soon. judy woodfruff of the pbs newshour kicks off our coverage. >> thanks, hari. from the beginning of the 2012 presidential campaign, p

parts i think we move forward. repealing that wouldn't get us where we need to go which is medicare for all systems which make it much easier for employers to hire workers and provide health care for them because they would be paying a simple medical payroll tax. it hasn't proven to be true because there should be increased by from medical devices under the affordable care act the i'm not compelled by his arguments. >> ann marie buerkle, your chance for rebuttal. buerkle: they're going to left 10% of the workforce is indicative of the affordable care act. i was going to affect jobs and economy. our largest employers in our district, the affordable care act is going to dramatically impact medicare reimbursement to hospitals, to our physicians along with sequestration. of our hospitals are not alive and welcome you can have the most comprehensive health care plan in the world but if you don't have hospitals or physicians who will treat these patients, their health care system is going to fail miserably. so i would say absolutely we need to repeal the affordable care act for jobs and t
to put that money back into medicare. we cannot afford that. i would be proud to carry the legislation as i was proud to carry the legislation to fund obamacare, i would be proud to support legislation to repeal obamacare. >> speaking about president obama, and i will have to ask the question differently. where has the president failed montana, and how would you fix it? >> i think he failed montana in health care. he added to a system that has already failed. i think the stimulus has already failed. our solution was not to pump money into a onetime expenditure. we want to try to expand payroll taxes. that would put money in the hands of small businesses. i would suggest the new regulations coming out are destroying jobs in billings, montana, costing over $10 million every year from our economy. but i do not understand why you would have an energy tax that is hurting our oil, coal, and gas industries on montana that we rely upon. >> the you feel president obama has implemented policies that hurt montana? >> i feel the race to the top is not a good policy for education for one candidate.
. let's streamline them. we have attacked medicare fraud and abuse. we need to continue to do that, in all government agencies. i spent years going into numerous fortune 500 countries -- companies looking for these inefficiencies. i plan using my government to find this week. >> can either of you give me any numbers? the department of energy? >> close to $85 billion. you are looking at a guy, never been in politics before, and i found three wasteful programs in the government. the combined savings of -- if every single member of the house was going and looking for wasteful programs, think about what that does. >> it is going to be a balanced approach. we need to look into it the tax code and go after deductions and loopholes that far too many corporations and individuals are getting away with. we need to make it a more fair playing field for companies. >> i wanted to get a break with my producer's questions, up because we hear from candidates all the time about what we are going to find wasteful spending. this is a chart, the u.s. debt clock, and viewers can see it, you can look in
medication -- medicare as we know it. that is a legitimate debate to have. but going on the air and sending $20 million to attack senator casey is what people are sick and tired of. they are done with those types of advertisements. i think that is why tom smith and that brand of politics, he will be rejected in this election. host: let's go to bismarck, north dakota. independent line. nathaniel, thanks for waiting. caller: thank you for having me on. good morning. host: good morning. caller: i would like the floor to yield 10 seconds. if i could reserve 10 more, i would like to be heard a little bit more. host: this is not the u.s. senate. but we will grant that request. caller: people who put the u.s. senate in place, my point of view as an independent is, when george bush was our present, -- president, you do not talk about the president negatively. he has the vote of the entire united states. it is the job of the congress and the senate to cooperate with our direct advocates straight from the top. he knows what we want because we voted for him. he made promises. it is your turn to help
, neither. >> i'll tell you the reason why. everything is on the line. if you're an older woman, medicare is on the line, or a man. but mostly women are on medicare. they want to end it as we know it, turn it into a voucher system. imagine an 80-year-old man or woman having to go hunt for insurance with a voucher. this is what they want to do. i want to say something about jobs because i think all of this talk by romney and ann romney about how only thing women care about is the economy. let's say that's true. do you know that under barack obama's leadership we have seen more private sector jobs created in the past three months than under george w. bush in eight years? >> yes. >> and mitt romney wants to take us back. so i can't even envision a romney presidency, but you're absolutely right. the supreme court is critical. everything that, you know, our constitution protects for us is at stake. >> let me bring in karen here. karen, i know that part of what president obama has done so beautifully is to make this argument that senator boxer is making there, the reproductive rights are econom
with the budget control act, this means closing tax loopholes, this means medicare saving money by negotiating drug prices directly. rea importation with canada. -- reimportation with canada. there are a lot of ways to save billions of dollars. we can say that we will always beat for lower taxes. we have cut taxes many times and i will continue to do that. but this will have to be a balance plan. >> i want to go back to something that mr. mandel was talking about. you attack them -- and now you are exceeding president obama's agenda 96% of the time. is this one-sided? >> what i have done is taken on the president of my own party when i think he is wrong. i disagreed with president clinton as a freshman member of the house on the north american free trade agreement. it was not easy opposing the president of the united states as a freshman member of congress and i have done this with barack obama on trade issues. i have done this with banking issues. on too big to fail, my legislation to break up the sixth largest trillion-dollar banks in this country, we lost on that but the support for this is
. it is not just jobs. it takes $700 billion out of medicare. there is only one candidate for the united states senate tonight who has voted to cut medicare. i also believe that it increases the cost of health care. we are seeing that already come close to $3,000 increase in health insurance premiums. it is going to cause our rural hospitals to close. i worked on the health care improvement act. i do not mind if my kids are on my insurance. i want them out of my refrigerator, but i do not mind if they are on my insurance. i think people should be able to buy insurance across state lines. those things will help to control the cost of healthcare. the cost of health care is the real problem. >> i am very proud of the work we did to reform health care in this country. a father came up to me in the middle of that debate and encapsulated what it meant for his family. he said, my daughter has epilepsy. when she pops out in her coverage and is no longer eligible because she's too old, there is not a single insurance plan that will take care. that is what health insurance reform means to me, he said. we
to take medicare, the medicare guarantee and turn it into a voucher which will cost seniors $6400 a year more. taking students and asking them to pay more for loans, cutting pell grants. it's taking middle class families and increasing their taxes -- >> moderator: i'm hearing you say the general sense of fairness, this 70/30 that you've come up with. congressman, you signed a pledge for grover norquist's americans for tax reform to never raise taxes, but now you're saying you would consider deficit reduction solutions that would include increased revenue. why the change? dold: well, certainly if you're going to lower rates or raise rates in one area, you've got to lower them in another. and i don't believe that raising taxes is necessarily the answer -- >> moderator: but you're now open to increased revenue, and two years ago -- i'm asking why the change? dold: because when i got to washington, things were worse than even i anticipated. what i am looking to try to do is solve these big problems. so i've come forth with an idea and a plan. certainly, i want to focus on my main street jobs
the board, the guy who pledged to voucherize medicare, all of a sudden, he does not plan to cut their programs. he plans to slow their growth. he eliminates $2,500 tax cuts for middle-class parents, it takes $1,000 off of pell grants, knocking god knows how many people out of college. saying they are not cutting medicare or environmental protection is like mitt romney trying to convince the guy in the unemployment line that he did not outsource his job, he offshored his job. and now romney is running ads all across the country about getting tough on china. the same guy the washington post called a pioneer in outsourcing. the same guy who criticize the president for taking action in china, saving thousands of jobs in the steel and rubber industry. the same guy who has part of his fortune invested in chinese companies. the same job the wants to sign a territorial act that would create 800,000 jobs -- all of them overseas. this is a guy who as governor of massachusetts literally outsourced the call service that people would call into to see if they qualified for unemployment. he se

was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2
said he would save medicare. he would pre serve and it protect it and save it from pending insolvency. in stead he cut medicare by $716 billion. he said he was going to have unemployment today down to 5.4%. we're nine million jobs short of that and he has no plan to get this economy going again to put americans to work. you notice there's some numbers he doesn't speak about. he doesn't use the number, 47. that happens to be how many million people are on food stamps today. 15 million more than than when he took office. he doesn't use the number 23 million. that's the number of people struggling to find a good job in this country. the president doesn't have a plan. he is out of ideas. he is out of excuses, and this november florida is going to make sure we put him out of office. [cheering] >> now in 2010, then-president obama came to pensacola. you probably weren't there, but some folks were. and he took pride in saying, and i quote, he halted reductions in the navy. that's what he said. but today, today he again has shrunk to a smaller version of the navy, and his view of the navy's r
of medicare and medicaid, social security and the interest on the national debt, all of those combined will exceed total govern unchecked government revenue by the year 2025. by 2040, 50% more than all the government collects in taxes. and that assumes that the tax collection levels will be about 20% of gdp, which is a big bet. and so, congresswoman ann marie buerkle. it's clear that taxes will get the job done come how you solve this problem? buerkle: thank you for hosting the event today. as evidence of what you showed us, we have a problem in this country. must we look at where money is going, right now the entitlement system and the way it is set up, they perpetuate themselves and they are not looked at. there are no changes being proposed and we know how dramatic medicare and medicaid spending is going up. it is a tremendous burden on her counting. we have to cut cabin balance will be cut spending and we kept our spending and we put a balanced budget and to place so that we have a spending plan. the problem is, that the senate has failed to take up the budget. it is very difficult
, and it is so draconian that it would require deep cuts in social security and medicare overtime. or we can embrace a balanced approach. that is what i support. i think we can go back to the kind of tax rates we had and the clinton administration, those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach that i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal. >> it is amazing to me, congressman, that you can stand here having voted for trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending of the last four years, and with respect to cuts, cap, and balance it is amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social securi

about priorities. it is about what values do we care about. i am not going to turn medicare into a voucher to pay taxes. i am not going to allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health-care reform and take millions of americans of health care and weaken the reforms we put in place, including making sure young people can stay on their parents' plan just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. by the way, i am not going to allow politicians in washington to control health-care choices women should make it by themselves. i am not going to do that. we are not going to go backwards. we are going to go for words. -- forwards.
